Daily Thought: It Can Be Lonely

It is a moment of trembling to realize the Heart of God, but this comes to the one who chooses to let God draw him closer to Himself.  Often this will occur in one, while others around him do not know anything at all about the seriousness of the moment with God.  But God desires such a relationship, where He can share His Heart.  This is the "friend" He is looking for.  This is the kind of relationship He is shaping in the one He calls.  This one will see father, see clearer, and see more than others around him.  This, too, will often separate him from those around him, especially because of the intensity with God this revelation creates.  It is sometimes lonely being a "friend of God"!

Henry Blackaby, Created to be God's Friend, Thomas Nelson (1999), p. 131
